What to do with free Part 2

I really can't say enough about how thrilled I was to get some free ornaments from a coworker. Sure, they're just cheap plastic but but I've been able to use them in about 6 different spots in my home!

The shelf above my kitchen sink is always changing. I couldn't wait to make it a little holiday-ish. After lots of decorating and re-decorating, I think I finally have a winning look. These are cute little sundae cups that happen to be heirlooms. They were the perfect size to hold these little guys.
A little vignette of Christmas colors ... you can't go wrong with milk glass and I added my little Willow Angel for an extra touch of holiday charm.

The third vignette in more Christmas colors. I'll be able to leave this up past Christmas, it's a little more "wintery" to me.

Hello, you! Anyone remember this little guy? I decided to buy him after I posted about him here. His cheeks match the ornaments perfectly.
On another note ... have you ever Google'd yourself? I did, well my blog name at least. I wasn't surprised to find my blog and Etsy shop but I did find this. Its a little write up picturing a set of mugs that are currently for sale in my shop. Thank you for the free advertising! Google yourself and see what's out there. It's kind of fun. And scary.


  1. Love the cups with the ornaments in them! I was soo tempted to buy that little elf. Glad he went home with you. Too cute!

  2. I too love the ornaments in the cups. It looks so feastive!

  3. My cups have a whole new purpose in life now that I have viewed this post...THANKS!
